Is This What Toto had in Mind?

Episode 13: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor counts down this week's top three moments.

No. 3 - Don't Be Tardy for Safari

Lions and rhinos and 'Wives, oh my! We're truly not in Atlanta anymore, as the ladies went from wild fights to wildlife on their safari. And as Phaedra pointed out it was as picturesque as... a beer commercial? In any event, it looked spectacular and both the Talls and the Smalls got to see some amazing animals in their natural habitat.

It seemed like the Smalls were having a little more fun watching the wildlife than the Talls (I don't who Cynthia was kidding when she tried to get Marlo and NeNe to quiet down). So much fun in fact, that Phaedra decided to put on her own little Masterpiece Theater of sorts and narrate her interpretation of the Talls' triangle via a group of giraffes. I guess it was too much of a coincidence that the three tallest animals just happened to be standing together for Phaedra to pass up commenting on all the vying for NeNe's attention.

No. 2 - Dances with School Children

It was quite the juxtaposition starting the episode with the tail end of Sheree and Marlo's melee and then seeing the 'Wives interact with the local children. Their visit to the orphanage was moving for them (and for all of us at home), but I most enjoyed seeing them play with a group of school kids. Those kids can dance! And it was precious watching all the ladies try to bust a move with them. (I think those kids could have taught the Housewives a thing or two.) But besides being fun to watch, spending time with the children seemed to have helped the ladies move on from all their personal issues. At least for now anyway...

No. 1 - Make It Rain Down in Africa

Grab your umbrella when you go out with Marlo, because evidently she likes to make it rain. And really what better way to blow off some steam after having a fight? The other ladies were slightly taken aback by all the cash raining down in the club, but that didn't stop Kandi and Phaedra from profiting off of Marlo's money throwing. As Phaedra aptly noted, "If honey wants to throw her money away, throw it right in my bosoms. Ayden could use some new shoes, some pampers, everything else, and some souvenirs." Get it, girl!

Side note: After watching this go down, I couldn't help but wonder -- Is this what Toto had in mind?

Next week the ladies give bonding another try. And what better way to bond than over some good old fashioned sex talk?

Cynthia's "Non-Conversation" with NeNe

Cynthia Bailey weighs in on the sit down with NeNe Leakes. 

Thanks for tuning in to another episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Let’s jump right in.

"When people show you who they are, believe them!" -Maya Angelou

I GOT YOUR BACK

Misery loves company, and I'm no longer making house calls. My dance card is full, and my cup runneth over! One of the last things that I recall saying at the reunion was that I believed my friendship with NeNe had come to the end of the road. I was happy to let bygones be bygones, wish everyone well, and move on with my life. I felt that too many boundaries had been crossed and chose to no longer accept friendships plagued with violations and disrespect. The space apart was a much needed break, and I prayed that time truly would heal all old wounds. That optimism was short lived when my friend (who "loved me like a sister") felt the need to attempt to publicly disgrace me and imply that I no longer needed to be a part of the show! Now that's some real sisterly love, right? That one singular moment showed me in HD that NeNe didn't know the meaning of a real friendship, and yes, the thirst really was real. It was astonishing to watch this woman who "had my back when none of these other bitches did" take the sharpest knife she could find, and gleefully stab me with it with no regard for me or my family. Regrettably for me, I never took heed to the many warnings concerning the wrath of NeNe, because I never truly believed them until I was on the receiving end. It was a very rude awakening, and yet oddly enough the only person I felt sorry for was her.

THE DOG THAT BARKS THE LOUDEST

Time passed and life went on until I found myself seated across the table from my girl, "I was a good friend!" NeNe. Despite everything that had happened, I somehow remained optimistic that we could have the conversation, agree to disagree, have a cocktail, and truly move on. I don't know what was more stale, the non-conversation that I had with NeNe or the saltines at the table. This clearly was a missed opportunity for both of us to take ownership and responsibility for any of our issues and put them to rest. I knew that seeing NeNe for the first time since the reunion would be emotional, but I chose not to let my emotions take over me. I wasn't interested in a screaming match or being over talked. I hope NeNe found closure in the conversation that she had with herself.

WWHL: ANNA MAE EATS CAKE

I know that the "Anna Mae" reference from NeNe was meant to be offensive and disrespectful, however I was actually flattered to be compared to one of the world's most popular entertainers, the queen of rock and roll herself Anna Mae Bullock AKA Tina Turner. Tina Turner is a legendary icon whose success, talent, strength, spirit, beauty, and class (not to mention her fabulous legs) speaks volumes and needs no introduction. My name being mentioned in the same sentence with her is an honor within itself. I hope this was not a failed attempt to make fun of the fact that at one point in Ms. Turner's largely successful career and life she was a victim of domestic abuse. All jokes aside, wasn't NeNe herself a victim of domestic abuse as well?

GIRL BYE!

I thought "Bye Girl" actually meant "Bye" and not "Hello Girl" I'm still talking about you! A girl can only dream that one day these words will eventually have merit and true meaning.
Thanks for watching and supporting!

I would like to send my condolences to Todd, Kandi, their entire family and loved ones for the loss of Miss Sharon. She was an amazing woman and will be greatly missed. On behalf of my family and staff, you all are in our prayers.
